I also have a 3 digit WH 1928. If you get it, get rid of the WH buffer pilot, they come apart.

Why not buy the Thompson outright? I would love to have an M2.
Anyway, to address the question, to make it fair, you would have to throw in a few grand.

Number 2: The gun works. Great. If the gun is in fantastic shape and almost new in the box (I hope he has the box) then value would run between 10-12K.
Number 3: The gun will not work. You will be required to spend between $1,500 and $2,500 getting the gun to work. The value will be between $8 and 10K. The last thing you want to do is spend 12K on a gun that wont work. A machine gun that wont run is like having a horse that cant walk. It looks pretty, but its f*&king useless.
Make the best deal you can. M2 carbines are no where near as desireable as any Thompson. Ammo costs more, they are only reliable when good magazines are used and most M2 stuff available today is NOT C&R.
Good luck for you
